In 2018, I started collecting paranormal terms when I realized there weren't any paranormal glossaries of sufficient length or scope. In 2020, I brought my work to Booksie because I think this is the best format. It's the largest online paranormal dictionary and contains almost anything of paranormal significance. I now call myself a paranormal lexicographer.

I am also an experiencer. My mom and I witnessed a giant pearl-like UFO one day while bringing home groceries. Ever since, I have kept my mind open. If you wish to read my official NUFORC report, it's here > http://www.nuforc.org/webreports/101/S101461.html

My book cover was commissioned and drawn by Enrique Pablo of Mexico. Here's his Fiverr link > https://www.fiverr.com/silvereeps

For more paranormal fun, search YouTube for "Halloween Jamboree", SAVE the playlist and use it for any creepy get-together.
